British media outlet The Sun reports that Jose Mourinho has been in advanced talks with Manchester United who have assured him that the job is his from next season.
Manchester United have told Jose Mourinho the Old Trafford job is his next season after advanced talks.
Portuguese coach’s camp were worried about rumours of approach for Laurent Blanc.
The report states that Manchester United will make Mourinho the best paid manager in football history with the deal worth around £20 million per year.
If Manchester United don’t sign Jose Mourinho this summer then TFF fears that the club could remain on a long-term and downwards spiral.
Talk of potential candidates like Pochettino, Laurent Blanc and Ryan Giggs taking the hot seat should remain just that because each of them represents too much of a gamble at this pivotal crossroads of Manchester United’s history.
Equally, the idea that Jose Mourinho is a negative and defensive coach would be unfair on the Portuguese and wide of the mark.
Yes he likes to build from the back. But isn’t that what Sir Alex did so successfully at Old Trafford for 25 years?
But let us not forget that Mourinho managed Real Madrid, a very powerful Chelsea side twice and took Inter to the treble in 2010. Mourinho is all too aware that winning football games means scoring goals and he is precisely what Manchester United needs right now. Furthermore we strongly believe that he would be absolutely idolised by the fans within a few months of taking the job.
In fact Manchester United need Mourinho more than Mourinho needs Manchester United at this point in time. He is the only one who can guarantee results for a club which may show signs of improvement from time to time but still sits fifth in the league and out of Europe.
The statistics speak for themselves and they simply aren’t good enough for a club of this size.
We also believe that The Special One is ready to make a mark on the football club in the long term. We believe that if he takes the reins of Manchester United he will stay at the club for up to 10 years and then move to an international team before his retirement.
It’s one of the most obvious decisions that the Manchester United board will ever have to make and if they fumble this one then we can only surmise that they aren’t up to the task of running this great club.
